Jochen Ott

Jochen joined the London Glassblowing team in 2007 after graduating in Glass design in Bavaria, Germany.

His current work mainly consists of blown and deeply carved glass sculptural forms.  He enjoys both the process of glassblowing as well as manipulating the material in its solid state.  Exploring the possibilities this extraordinary material has to offer, he uses a variety of techniques to reveal the beauty it carries within.

“Everyday life experiences are the dominating aspects of my work.

My inspiration is drawn from the tranquillity and rawness of nature, its elements and life forms, and the qualities of this extraordinary material itself.  It carries boundless creative properties within.

I use a variety of techniques to play with form, distorting shapes and surfaces, exploring transparency and opacity; aspiring to create tension and harmony, movement and stillness.”
